Rachel Singel named 2024 Ecolympics Grand Prize Winner

Ecolympics 2024 logoFor eight weeks from January 28th to March 23rd, UofL students, faculty, and staff engaged in another year of friendly competition during Ecolympics 2024 to see who could take the most action to advance sustainability!

We had an incredible number and diversity of green actions submitted from across the university community, but as we all crossed the finish line together on March 23rd, there was on Ecolympian who clearly rose to the top!

The UofL Sustainability Council extends our warmest congratulations to Fine Arts professor, Rachel Singel, for being named the Grand Prize Ecolympian and taking home the amazing Peace of the Earth Refillery prize pack!

Rachel SingelRachel composts, recycles, and donates regularly, in addition to helping out on the urban farm where she lives.

She is most proud of her daily biking commutes and her work in teaching others about invasive plant species, especially in the papermaking workshop she led earlier this year.

We want to shout-out everyone who participated in Ecolympics this year. Thank you ALL for striving to make our planet a greener, more sustainable place. Through little choices every day, we can make a difference!

Thanks to All 2024 Ecolympians!
